This event is specifically geared toward increasing diverse student populations in graduate schools. Only students who are sophomores, juniors or seniors  with a 2.8 GPA or higher are eligible and come from an underrepresented background (first-generation and/or African American, Latinx, Native American, Hmong, etc.) are encouraged to participate.

Forum workshops will provide information about: selecting the right graduate program; the graduate application process; financial aid opportunities; preparing for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and employment prospects.  In addition, representatives from over 100 leading institutions will be available throughout the day to answer questions and talk with you.


Transportation, lunch and the Forum itself are FREE!  However, a deposit of $20.00 (refundable for those attending) is required to reserve a place on the bus.  Details on time and place of departure will be sent to students who register and submit their fee. To sign up and register, students must come into the EOP office in SSC 310 between 8am-5pm by Thursday, March 30th. Seats are filling fast so don’t miss out on this opportunity.

#SupportNSPR: North State Public Radio Nears Membership Drive Finish Line

Today is the last day of North State Public Radio’s Spring Membership Drive, and we’re feeling optimistic on the heels of what was perhaps the most successful day of fundraising in NSPR’s history Wednesday.

Public radio fan CSU, Chico President Gayle Hutchinson also stopped by yesterday morning, encouraging the Chico State community to #SupportNSPR.

In these uncertain times, we all recognize the importance of local independent journalism. That’s why we’re asking for your support at this critical hour.

Please give whatever you can to ensure that the North State continues to have access to the vital news and information programming on NSPR.

You can make your gift online quickly and securely.

At the end of the drive, we will be giving away our grand-prize trip to Washington, D.C., to visit NPR headquarters. All Sustaining Members are already entered into this and every drawing.

Thank you for being a part of the community that allows public radio to thrive in the North State.
